Fully Funded Places Available on Stirling's MSc. in Big Data

The government has identified Big Data skills as essential for our economy to prosper. Big Data expertise is already in high demand and attracting higher salaries due to the skills shortage.

To help meet the demand for Big Data skills, the Scottish Funding Council is paying the fees for 40 students to study Big Data and Data Science in selected Scottish Universities, including Stirling. If you are a resident of Scotland or the EU, you can apply to have all of your fees paid and learn Big Data skills and technologies in Stirling's beautiful campus in the heart of Scotland.
